Publisher Z-Man Games takes Pandemic, the popular board game about stopping the disease, in a new direction. The company reorganizes the cooperative system and turns it into a video game. World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King – A pandemic system game will be out in November, and it now has a proper trailer that we have posted above.
The game was announced earlier this month with a teaser trailer. The final look of the game was leaked on Tuesday afternoon when the Wario64 Twitter account discovered it for sale on Amazon. The game is currently listed there as “temporarily sold out.”
We still do not know everything about how the game will work. The news release that followed the trailer mentions missions:
When you fight the Lich King, all kinds of dark magic and terrible creatures under his control must be neutralized. This comes in the form of missions, a brand new mechanic that can be completed as a team through a combination of roll of the dice and the use of the hero cards at your disposal. However, each quest comes with its own dangers and obstacles. Complete these missions to get closer to the latest attack on the Icecrown Citadel, where Lich King himself lives.
The big drawing here – as with many modern crowdfunded board games – seems to be the pieces. Wrath of the Lich King will feature some clever 3D features, like an Icecrown Citadel from papercraft. There are also a handful of exquisite mini-thumbnails in full size such as Warchief of the Horde, Thrall, Varian Wrynn and Sylvanas Windrunner.
